Thanks to Lee Anna ( she keeps me motivated), here's my list of likes for this week:
1. Avocado Nachos. I had just got home from a major grocery shopping. I was starving, so I just sprinkled Italian blend cheeses with a little piece of chipotle soft cheese over tortilla chips, baked in the micro 25 seconds and added smashed avocado with a few shreds of lettuce. Sort of healthy but done! Really good, too.
It was a quick, easy snack till I could get a lunch thrown together.
2. PBS show-The Story of China
We have watched 2 in the series. The video and photography is outstanding while the host, Michael Wood, is delightful. He presents the country's long history while providing a glimpse of their many current day cultures simultaneously. This photo is from the PBS website. Please check your local listings if you want to watch these also. The DVD's can be purchased and of course, you can watch them online at PBS.
3.Another finished quilt. This is the Scrap Slice quilt. I sewed informal scraps together to form 10 inch blocks with an added peach border. It's about 50 x 60 inches. It will be donated to the ALS foundation next week.
This is the first time I "tied" a quilt and I have to say: I LOVED IT. The tying was quick and easy while TV watching, but didn't hurt my thumbs as hand sewing does. I machine stitched the sides of the blocks and borders then I just tied each of the block centers with embroidery thread. ALS accepts all types of quilts whereas, other agencies require machine stitched quilting. There is a "Hopes & Dreams Quilt Challenge for ALS" on right now sponsored by Quilters Dream Batting. You can see it at Quilters Dream Batting.
I hope everyone enjoyed the 4th here in the USA. Please join us at Lee Anna's blog for other likes:NOT AFRAID OF COLOR.
